Volunteer

As an organization, we operate with only one full-time staff and a small number of part-time staff–most of our annual and conference activities are done by our dedicated volunteers.
We’re looking for dedicated members of the jazz community with a variety of skill sets to dedicate their time on an ongoing volunteer basis, or at the annual conference.

Apply to volunteer during the annual conference or serving one of our teams.

Jazz is open-ended music designed for open minds. It is enlightenment and understanding between differently-minded people. Our volunteer opportunities offer a spirit of collaboration to a new generation of open minds.
